What I especially liked was this:

"Unfortunately I’m a terrible emacs lisp programmer. I can barely
remember a thing each time I use it. But the interpreter is of course
just emacs itself and the elisp documentation is in emacs, so it’s a
really fun environment to develop in. And because emacs lisp has a ton
of support for doing things to itself, code that acts on emacs and
your own editing session or buffers is often very succinct. See for
example the save-excursion and with-output-to-temp-buffer functions
below."
